The existing thermal_zone_device would be a new thermal zone
with one sensor in it.

Okay got it. This is what myself & Rui discussed a while ago to address
this.

When these patches are merged, they will co-exist for some time.
Rui had an idea to write a wrapper on top of these, which will
make the existing drivers complaint with new API.
This wrapper can be a Kconfig option, to select on what we need;
new/existing APIs.

Thanks,
Durga
